    Built in the plain, it is not widespread within the temple. Original is surrounded by mountains, was the name of the hōrinji-ji Temple, but after the disappearance of the warring States period is named Gong Temple, during the Edo period it was rebuilt in relocating to current level. Is so, go and see something seen lay reclining Buddha Temple when you once every five years. Next is the year 2019?

    It was eighty No. 9 Temple temple in the countryside to the gate (Deva) and only are the original small temple. Kobo-Daishi carved in the main hall and the Japanese and reclining Buddha to Buddha, reclining Buddha to temples 88 only here, just as it is. Published only once every five years, and 0/2020 is next. Good Walker prayer for the many sandals were is dedicated to the main hall.

    Street no. 9 Temple here is written for others in 88 only, a reclining Buddha Temple is. However, it is difficult to look like not forever only once every five years to come. Originally, as the origin of this temple and found a snake Kobo Daishi, is said to use Buddha's auspicious things I've seen, and sculpt the statue of Buddha's nirvana is said have founded the temple as the principal image. However, the place is located about 4 kilometers north of the place now, as hōrinji Temple was named the chosokabe motochika is came and moved to its current location, and then burned down in parent hahi. Located in a very peaceful pastoral scenery. In the precincts of the temple was the reincarnation of the White Snake (? ) And seems to white cat & kitten looks just like we had. It seems connected generation White Snake (pictured, right) probably saw Kobo Daishi, over time, changed to the cat. Unfortunately I can't carve a statue of Buddha's nirvana of Kobo Daishi, but enjoyed cat and "Buddhist riddle".
